Anders Fuc**d the mages in Kirkwall, but he gave the push all other Circle mages needed for freedom.

The end justify the means!? Or nice guy bad plans!? Maybe a small sacrifice for a brighter future.

Nice work! But agreed, seeing that scene play out was like "oh...crap." couldn't kill him in the end though :)
I like the crystalized effects on him for Justice possession, you portray the progression nicely. :D

Okay, okay. Now I've officially played this. I was like "I see you there Mr. Renegade Coat" for the entirety of act 3. I knew what he was gonna do, and yet I still romanced him. Ha. Haha. Sad. But the man is a mage... with a pet kitty cat. Named Ser Pounce-a-lot. I couldn't friggin' resist. Playing Awakenings before this makes it so hard.

Once again, this is beautiful. And now I feel like I can fave it without betraying myself...

I actually LOATHED what they did with Anders in the sequel.

That said, the piece is awesome.

Have to agree with the person down below - we have this artwork, so we do have some very nice things! :D But yes. Anders. He broke mah li'l heart with this stunt. Gah. But I let him live anyway 'cause then I could give him hell about it for years after. So there.

OMG! You like DA too!!!! Ha I love the fact that all the people I follow tend to find the same wonderful fandoms!

This is a beautiful version of our dear mage Anders. I love the look that you crafted on his face, he looks like he is tortured by his actions but is determined to make them none the less.
ElizaMoonchild Featured By Owner Apr 6, 2011
I totally get that reference...!
RamenWarrior Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I thought those ingredients where strange. O_o

Amazing paint work! Details are all nailed down and accurate with in-game!
EverEnigmatic Featured By Owner Apr 4, 2011
AH! Anders <3

Hahaha, he was totally my choice as love interest. I feel bad though, because I never played Awakening D:

Hmm.... something seems a tad awkward about the arm holding the staff, but it's probably just because of the angle it's supposed to be at. I love the magical veins on him <3
Regari Featured By Owner Apr 4, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
I had to stab him. =<
The Grand Cleric was an extremely nice lady and mages were never any nicer to my Rogue then Templars, they are all the same, people are just not good sometimes. =(

Best part of the game, they actually made me hate Anders after all we went through in Awakenings.

I was so proud that Anders made it!

Artist's comment made this picture a complete winner.
The drawing looks really nice!! Love the lighting and effects. I also like the Justice effect you got going there. In all, Great job! :love:
akaderyl Featured By Owner Apr 1, 2011
Your artist comment thing is almost exactly what my friends and I said at that point in the game.
Yerica Featured By Owner Apr 1, 2011
Oh... this is amazing. So srs, so epic.
And then your AN made me lawl.
Thank you for that, sincerely.
And amazing, amazing picture.
Estelindis Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2011
Super-ominous and kinda freaky-scary. In part I feel sorry for Anders and Justice because the combination of man and spirit clearly destroyed both of them. But mostly I feel angry at the death and devastation they caused. "God damnit Anders!"
blu3canary Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2011
When this first happened I felt so betrayed...and then I realized that I actually agreed with him. Does that make me a bad person?
Also, you did a really good job with this.
catiniata Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2011
ggggrrrrr I was so pissed. Amazing work
kerighan Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2011  Student General Artist
it's freakin awesome - i expecialy like anders' face, his expression and how good you drew it.
DawnFrost Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2011
Yeeeeeeeeeeaaaaah, when this scene came up all I could picture is this (saw it when you first posted it then realized hadn't gotten that fair and hightailed it away from the spoils) and GOD DAMNIT ANDERS!!! Was about all I could say ._. I swear if I hadn't put so much freaking time into his level ups and spells - not too mention nicer to some of my other companions he would have been dead no question..... GOD DAMN YOU ANDERS WHAT THE HELL WHERE YOU THINKING!!!!!!!
Luni-Doll Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2011
Yeah when he came up and said that grand cleric lady cant help them. I was all oh So you poisoned her ... Kay.. *BOOOM*.........fuck
MelpomeneTears1 Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2011  Hobbyist Writer
This is beautiful, and I love the comments.
McNeko Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2011
Okay... you just got me to spit-take with the "this is why we can't have nice things" bit.

When that went down, I could picture my Hawke shouting "ANDERS. YOU. IDIOT!"

I let him live, but I figure my F!Hawke automatically wins all arguments from here on out.
Anders: "But you never let me..."
Hawke: "Exploding Chantry, Anders. Shut up."
Anders: "... fine..."
